A friend of mine posts random thoughts daily. I really enjoy reading them. Thought I’d try to do that as well. Here’s a first:
Jul. 16th mind blowing random thought of the day: During the late 1700s, Europeans claimed that tomatoes were poisonous because wealthy citizens were reported to have died after eating them. However, it was discovered approx. 200 years later that the reason they died was because the tomatoes were served on pewter plates, which were high in lead content, and when combined with the acid from the tomatoes, resulted in lead poisoning.
